Back To Basics: The Best Red Nail Polishes

Welcome to back to the basics! This is a BellaSugar feature that highlights some of my favorite products on the market that don't always get the attention they deserve because they aren't new or improved.

Red nail polish is a quintessentially classic look, and I hope you like these suggestions. I am sure that some of you have favorites of your own, so please leave a comment below and share them with everybody! And since we are on the topic of nail polishes, click here to read about some of the top nail polish brands.

OPI Red ($7.50) is more of a pinky-red than a true tomato red. I've been a big fan of this color for a long, long time and I even sported it on my toes for the better part of 2005! It is part of the OPI Classics Nail Polish collection, and it remains one of OPI's best-selling colors.

Revlon Red Nail Enamel ($4.59) is the first red nail polish I ever tried and I wore it for years. Now this is a true red. Not too orange, not too blue. It's the perfect polish to make a statement, and you can't beat the price!

Chanel Le Vernis in Shanghai Red ($19) is a deep red with just a little bit of shimmer. This was the first "designer" nail polish I ever wore. As much as I love, love, love the color, I'll admit, it's not very chip resistant. However, it does have a high shine and requires very little drying time.
